Diane Enger Fun and Creative Glass Classes!  

Draped Vase or Voltive

In this class we will be using paint, powders and mica to decorate a piece of glass. You will learn a variety of techniques that can be used to create a surface and color on the glass that will enhance your design.   After this it will be slumped over a mold to give it a free form shape that will become a vase or a candle holder.  No experience is necessary.

Inspirational Night Light

We all have a favorite quote or message that inspires us – Sometimes it is a special date or name.  In this class we will learn how to create and position our lettering on a piece of glass.  We will then paint it and use bits of transparent glass and frit to decorate the surface and give it color.  Our finished piece will be a night light that will remind us daily of our special thoughts, people or memory.

POLYMER CLAY (MOKUME GANE)

Mokume Gane is an Ancient Japanese metalworking technique which produces mixed-metal layers.  These metal layers are then carved or cut into thin layers and then bonded together to form a sculpture.  We will do this same technique using polymer clay.  We will take this technique and apply it to whatever you want to make:  If it is Jewelry, covering a vase or wine glass, buttons or even a light switch plate.  This class has proven to be a fun class, with many wanting to do it again and again.
